Beloved East Vancouver bistro will close for good this weekend

The little red wagon hovering over the doorway of a beloved East Vancouver French-style bistro will roll out for good this weekend, as Bistro Wagon Rouge revealed Wednesday night that they are closing for good.

The Powell Street “blue collar bistro” says Saturday, Nov. 23 will be their final day of service.

Opened in October 2013, the cozy bistro is a sibling to the crowd-pleasing Red Wagon diner-style restaurant on East Hastings, which is also owned by Wagon Rouge’s Brad Miller.

Miller listed the restaurant for sale earlier this fall. No word at the moment on who will occupy the space at 1869 Powell St. once Bistro Wagon Rouge closes its doors for good this weekend.

“Thank you for alllll the good times Vancouver, it’s been a dream,” says Bistro Wagon Rouge.
